This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a pale hazy grapefruit rind color with a thin finger-ed white foamy head that dissipated nicely. Semi-sticky lacing clings on one side of the glass. The smell takes in subtle danky onion laying down a dry bitter to sweet oaty take over some sweet citrus pulp. The taste was basically the same bringing about the bitterness a bit stronger in the citrus. Definitely a dry bitter aftertaste and really dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable feel to it. Leans probably more towards a sipping feel. Bitterness feels good. Overall, its a pretty good DIPA, definitely a dry one. I could see myself coming back to this.

16oz can purchased from Taco Tonto's in Kent for $7. From latest release on 23APR2017.

Opaque, pineapple colored elixir poured into DFH chalice. Large bright white head of foam settles to a thick rim. Lacing everywhere along the vessel.

Fresh tropical fruits (kiwi, mango, pineapple--the pineapple predominates), a whiff of cotton candy comes through.

Tropical fruit, pine, spice flavors with a nice, lingering bitterness.

Medium body, nicely carbonated. The alcohol is subtle considering the abv.

There is a lot of promise in the nose but the tropical hop flavor is somewhat muted by the oats. Still a nice DIPA.
